SO DECLARES GENERAL RIVERA
The Story of the Fight and Flight

a Story, and that Only.
IJkw Yobk, Dec. 26. A special from
Key West to the World says :
Steamship passengers say that Gener
al Rivera, who is in command of the
army of Maceo, has sent a formal warn
ing to General Weyler, General Rivera
notified the Spanish captain-general that
if he persisted in his threats to kill pa
cificoa found in the country, the Cubans
will make reprisals on all Spaniards
whom they may capture.
General Weyler is affecting to disre
gard the warning. Those near him bow
ever, say be will not dare to carry oat
bis ideas as ruthlessly a9 be intended.
HFs guerillas still have full authority to
capture or to kill pacificos in. the coun
try and to force their families into the
garrisoned towns. As the troops in such
places have little extra food and the re
sidents none to spare, this order lays a
great hardship npon the poor country
iolk. Hundreds will soon be starving.
General Rivera is moving out of his en
trenchments. All indications point to
an important engagement soon.
General Weyler has visited various
points on the trocha and RanChristobal.
He is always accompanied by a large
There is skirmishing daily along the
trocha and on the outskirts of Artemisa.
A -battle has been fought in Santa
Clara province between guerilla bands.
The Cubans forced the Spanish to retire
into Remedios with heavy loss.
Regia, across the bay from Havana,
was attacked again last night almost un
der the guns of the fortress. Several
houses were burned and a running fight
maintained for two hours.
. The fighting around the city greatly
alarms the reeidents. The troops' night
watch in the suburbs have been doubled.

- ships Denied In Havana.

Commercial-Tribune from Key West says
Much comment was made today in
Havana over the report cabled from New
York that the filibustering steamer
Three Friends bad been -fired on by
Spanish cruisers, and that the steamer
had disabled a Spanish gunboat. This
report is positively denied in official cir
cles, who affirm that nothing of the kind
occurred, but that the story is made
from whole cloth. It is admitted that
the steamer landed . on the south
side of the island. It is farther admitted
that only a part of the cargo was secured
by Gomez, the Spanish coast guard hav
incr captured a good portion.. The
Three Friends is here, lying under the
guns of the Raleigh. Captain Lewis re
fuses tct say anything about the trip,
save that he had been after derelicts.
As to the story of a fight, he professes
ignorance. None of the crew can be in
duced to speak of the affair. The veesd
does not bear any mark of a conflict, and
the report is doubted here,
Havana, Dec. 25. Inquiries in official
quarters by the correspondent of the As
sociated Press elicited a denial of the
story published in the United States,
that the filibustering steamer Three
Friends fired upon a Spanish guard
